It’s about time for your routine dental appointment. You may be wondering what to expect at your six-month appointments. We are more than happy to give you a rundown of your upcoming appointment.

Professional Dental Cleaning
When you come in to Cardwell Family Dentistry, your teeth will be professionally cleaned of plaque and tartar. These cleanings help keep your gums healthy. Your teeth will then be flossed and polished.

Oral Examination
Dr. Laurin Cardwell will then examine each of your teeth and your gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease and other dental issues. During cavity detection, our dentist will look for visible signs of decay as well as any indication that the tooth enamel has softened. To determine the condition of your gums, our dentist will measure the pockets between your teeth and gums.

Dental Hygiene Instruction
Our hygienist and dentist may go over some of your individual home care needs. They may give tips on proper brushing or flossing, advise you on foods to avoid, or tell you about some good snacking choices.

We invite you to contact our office at 828-631-3567 today to learn more about your upcoming dental cleaning in Sylva, North Carolina, and to schedule your next visit.
